Why does the gas I pass have such a foul odor?
I wouldn't dare try to pass gas without being far far away from anyone.
I have UC for 2 years now, and taking 9 Asacol a day and enemas when needed.

I know what you mean, too. Most of the time, mine doesn't have much scent, but when I eat certain foods, it gets downright rank and embarrassing! Maybe it depends on the flare and/or what you've eaten?

Hi, I too had lot of gas during last year. Then I started taking Imodium (with antigas) to control my stool. Also I am in a kind of remission now. and I dont pass the gas. I think Imodium helped in my case.
Medicines currently using:
Colazal - 3x 3 times a day
Prednisone - 1mg
Lialda - 2x 1.2 mg (My doc asked to stop colazal and try this. Any reviews abt Lialda??)
Rowasa enema - nightly once
6MP - 62.5 mg
Iron - 3 times a day
Folic Acid - Once a day
Synthroid - 100mg (Hypothyroid)
Imodium - 1x 3 times a day

lol, so the asacol makes it stinkier? that's just wrong! I always thought it was dairy. I try to avoid it, but I do love cheese. I try to stay away from those cruciferous veggies too, and popcorn.
Get me a box of kittens, stat!
